Two British soldiers (Trinder and Hale) and a WREN (Decker) take refuge at Stonehenge during a thunderstorm, they are struck by lightning and transported back to ancient Rome. They make ends meet by making prophecies but are just about to be thrown to the lions when lightning strikes them for a second time and they return to the present. A musical comedy with many war-time jokes - it hasn't dated well.

Released October 1944
